Bangs are so darn cute and charming. Especially when they have that effortlessly chic look. Adding layers to your bangs is the best way to get a look that flatters your face shape and get lots of versatility out of your look. Bangs look great with every hairstyle. From a long pixie to the long beach waves, bangs with layers can add dimension and edge to your hairstyle. Whether you want bangs for a new look, to compliment your face shape or because you’ve always had them or you trying out something new, consider adding layers to you bangs.
Layered Curtain Bangs
You are probably familiar with the Brigitte Bardot bangs. This style of bang, also known as the curtain bang, works well with almost every face shape – even those who don’t think they can wear bangs – and these bangs look best with layers.
Heavy Side Swoop
For some ladies, the side-swept bang just isn’t bold enough and we totally understand. The heavy side-swept bang is a flattering hairstyle for every face shape and it can work well for most hair types (but beware if you have curly hair). The layers will give your heavy side-swept bangs volume, texture and style. They look gorgeous with up, down and half-up hairstyles.
Classic Layered Side-Swept Bangs
If you’re looking for a bang hairstyle but don’t really want the maintenance or dramatic change then long side-swept bangs are the perfect option. This is the easiest type of bang to maintain and it is a great option for ladies with cowlicks, kinks, crazy locks or curls as well as straight and fine hair. Whether you have a short bob or long tresses, side-swept bangs are perfect.
Layered Straight Across Wispy Bangs
Wispy bangs are great for soften facial features such as a strong jaw or cheekbones. They work well with a long face shape, square face shape and even round face shapes if done right. These bangs aren’t exactly layered but rather cut with razored edges across the bottom to create a feathered (or layered) look. Generally this creates a wispy look with the bangs but you could opt to get them fuller so that they aren’t so wispy.
